Philosophy and Mission
"A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down" - Mary Poppins
Maybe Mary Poppins had the right idea; we just try to do it a little healthier. We truly care about everything our little cubs put in their growing bodies and we know you do too! With this in mind, we only use the highest quality ingredients:
Honey: A great source of antioxidants, honey has antibacterial and anti fungal properties. For centuries, honey has high medicinal value and is well known for its cough suppressing properties. The American Academy of Pediatricians (AAP) does not recommend giving honey to infants under 12 months of age.
Elderberry: The fruit of this shrub is packed with vitamin C and growing research supports its immunity boosting benefits This is largely due to it being high in Flavanoids (especially Anthocyanins) that help protect the immune system.
Ascorbic Acid: A vitamin found particularly in citrus fruit. Essential to maintaining healthy connective tissue, it is also thought to be an anti oxidant.
Citric Acid: Also found naturally in citrus fruits and known to give food a sour taste. We add just a touch.
Lemon Juice: Lemons are well known for their high Vitamin C and antioxidant content.
Cane Sugar: Organic cane sugar is unrefined sugar minus the pesticides present in conventionally grown sugar cane. Because it is less processed, it retains the nutrients present in cane juice.
Linden Tea leaves: The dried leaves of the linden tree have medicinal purpose. Due to their high phytonutrients and flavanoids, they help reduce inflamed and swollen membranes throughout the mouth and respiratory tract. This helps to reduce coughing, irritation and sooth sore throats.
